Murray's Cheese Bar

$31 to $50
Contemporary American
We’ve been selling cheese at our Bleecker Street flagship store since 1940, and in 2012 the team behind Murray’s Cheese decided we needed a place to host our friends and neighbors for cheesy brunches, dinners and spirited celebrations. Murray’s Cheese Bar was born, and so was a world of fine cheeses made locally and abroad, selected and arranged by expert mongers or cooked into divine dishes by our seasoned chefs.

We love cheese, but our menu also features seasonal specials, high-quality meat and produce and fantastic happy hour specials during the week. Join us for dinner seven nights a week or weekend brunch next time you’re passing through Greenwich Village and see why we’re so in love with what we serve

    Fondue was amazing. Perfect for two people! Ambiance was very romantic and servers didn’t rush us out, very nice experience would definitely go again.

    Shared the raclette duo with a friend and loved the interactive experience! Cheeses selected did not have a wide variety in taste, but were all mild/palatable, so anyone would enjoy! After melting 3 rounds of cheese to put over accompaniments, there were still plenty to snack on and share.

    Went to brunch on a sunday with 3 friends. Everyone was very happy with their meal and mimosas. Our server was wonderful!!! We had a 12:30 reservation, but it wasn't crowded - although by the time we left there was a line.

    Every time we are in the city we make sure to stop for dinner. We love the Cheese-monger's choice. Always add 2 meat choices. The pairings provided are perfect and complement the cheese's so well. No where else to get such incredible artisanal cheese. Service is friendly and knowledgeable.

    We absolutely would not miss eating at Murray's when we visit NYC. Far and away it has the best cheese in NYC, and so much better than anything we can find in our own city of Chicago. We love to sit at the bar, where we can talk easily with the bartender about what cheese he recommends and what wine might go best. The bar is also the best place for 2 people to talk in this restaurant, which is quite loud. Recently, our server Eduardo did a wonderful job of taking care of us. We ordered an 8-item cheese and meat plate. Cheeses are perfectly cared for, at the height of flavor, and wonderful to eat. Items on the plate are paired with various jams and spices that enhance the flavors. Murray's is casual and fun, always a pleasure. We look forward to returning. Thank you for making this such a memorable experience!

    Food was excellent. Wine list was great with a broad selection. Service was ok until the hostess asked us to leave as she had another reservation coming that she was not prepared for, even though we hadn’t gotten our check yet.

    The barman was excellent, sharing his passion for cheese, smiling and giving his best pieces of advice : a real Murray's guy ! But the other members of the team were really sleepy, missing some key steps and more focused on their cellphones than customers. The raclette was interesting but at the end a bit disappointing. We would have like a generous, hot, cheesy raclette : their heating system is cute but at the end, we miss the "back-to-the-childhood" effect of an alpine one.

    There is a corkage fee of $75 per bottle. So beware! The wine list is mediocre and does not warrant a corkage fee this high

    Food was pretty overpriced and overrated for what it is. The fondue was excellent but our meals were just eh - the Mac & cheese was dry, burger was overcooked, grilled cheese was beyond greasy. Would come back for fondue/apps but not worth the price for the meal & drinks.

    We love eating at Murray’s, it’s our regular date night spot, and we visit were disappointed to find that they had changed the fondue recipe (meats no longer cooked, overall bland taste of fondue(. We tried to address it with our waitress but she didn’t seem interested in any feedback! Please change it back, we love it so!

    We were on Christmas vacation and wanted to try some new food experiences. We decided on Fondue. We found a top 10 list on line and Murray’s was on that list. They definitely did not disappoint! The Fondue was so good! Loved it. My son loves to get cheese samplings with accoutrements when ever it is offered at a restaurant. This was the first time the selections for the cheese were made after asking what type of cheese flavors he preferred. The chef then made the selections for him. He loved it!! So much so, that we canceled the next day’s dinner reservations at another restaurant and had dinner again at Murray’s. If you love cheese, you have to try Murray’s.

    Murray's is amazing! We became subscribers to the cheese of the month club after our first visit here and absolutely lover going to the restaurant when we are in town. We highly recommend the burger and of course any of the cheese plates. The portions are really generously and everything is served with a detailed explanation from the staff. The vibe is fun and the music is always great.
